drop the world

everything is just falling into place.  the planets are aligned, and i’ve been so happy for the past two weeks or so.  i also don’t see it changing anytime soon so that’s a +.  2 and a half days of classes this week, and then a bit of a break and a bit of work and a bit of fun.

just thuggin out in the dirtay gham.  finally some new photos and an overdue trip to photoshops to drop off some random undeveloped rolls of film- SO EXCITED, who knows what gems they may contain.  roasting a chicken tonight- taking a trip to my miniature heaven.  friday was oh so much fun.  can’t even put it in words.  lemon stings, wu-tang clan, etc. etc.

not to be terrible or anything- but there are so many ridiculous people in coffee shops.  people who steal seats, who sing, who howl, and who are plain out wretched.  i try not to feel uncomfortable, but sometimes its really hard not to.  arabica should not be polluted with the typical crazy that peruses the congo, that’s all i have to say.

so happy.  a mixed tape posted tomorrow.  it’s actually one i made for a friendsie poo.

anyway, happy november night.

howlin’ for you

chaos has been unleashed if you want to know my honest opinion.  in addition to dealing with chaos head on, i am currently plagued with an ailment and can’t stop coughing or being the one who sniffles opposed to blows their nose. at this point, i’m basically over eveything i had my hopes up for, for an obvious reason which is that i could just care less. but now that i say that in all honesty, it’s bound to change at some point or another.

SPACE was so spectacular last night- the middle east (pictured above) and laura marling were both really wonderful, not to mention a most welcomed surprise from Mr. I.  i got home late, and i passed out needless to say. being as fatigued as i happened to be meant that i was obviously going to oversleep, so here i am, sitting in bio, with last night’s cat eyes fading about my eyes, hair flat and rather bed-head like, and a pair of pencil jeans with a grey t-shirt. i ran to make it in on time. you’d think it was the beginning of the year seeing how i seem to be falling into my old habits.  spring fever has officially taken control & all i want is to be celebrating summer with those who i truly care for.

enfin’s spent a grand amount of time with bela dearest & even G! it’s been much needed- girl time.  i just have to get through seven more days and i will be all set to finish the school year (even though our end date is 6.11) projects galore, and i guess i’m not putting 100% into them, but i don’t think anyone is.

the one thing i need most at this moment is a big cup of arabica’s french roast & something savory.  soon enough. this day needs to get over sooner rather than later (even though that means i have to produce 40+ note cards & a short story about the 4th dimension. i feel wonderful in regards to those items on my to-do list)

if i were you i’d listen to the middle east.

the past few days have been quite interesting… if i am being entirely honest. i don’t feel like going into details, so i’ll sort of leave it at that.  tonight i went to space and saw the low anthem and brown bird, and cried because timber timbre wasn’t there, so i couldn’t hear:

but que sera, sera. i’ve been busy with tennis, research papers, tea making, cake baking, and taking rolls of film here in portland. i’m tired to be entirely honest, but the busiest breaks are always the best in my mind. i saw beautiful bela last evening, and that was lavish. tomorrow or today, or whatever it is exactly, i have plans to go to local for brunch and then to the bike swap and then out to borders to get a few must have books that are unable to be found at YES or Cunningham.  currently listening to bob dylan on vinyl… while pondering whether or not i said the right thing. oh too bad. honesty equals prosperity, yeah? i sure hope so.
